I am a mom, a writer, and a survivor.
I love to read and I believe stories are our own little pockets of paradise. When I read and when I write, I somehow become part of the text--the scribe that records that scene which plays through her head or the child hidden in the trees as another's story unfolds.
I am a Christian. I believe that God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. Yes, my stories have steam, and often a lot of it. However, even in the steamy times, there are purposed interactions which show healing, love, and meaning, or contrast the way in which a loving man responds so differently than an abusive one. Sometimes, the only difference is intent.
I have been badly beaten and abused in my life, and though I ask for your feedback, I ask that you do not speak to me in overly harsh terms or denigrate my work. A harsh remark, to me, is akin to a bodily assault, and there have been times that someone was displeased with a chapter that was difficult to bear (such as the death of a loved one), and that person was so displeased that they did their utmost to attack and destroy me as a person.
For my health, I will not tolerate such abuse. I will block nasty and attacking comments, but welcome genuine advice.
Because of the need to close my old account, I am bringing all of my books onto this one, some steamier than others. Please do not read the R rated books if you are not 18.
Thank you all for your kind, loving support as my children and I have been healing. I know that I have been quiet, but your patience has been uplifting and your comments encouraging.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the stories!
